Bang & Olufsen has introduced a new stylish modular wireless speaker system that looks like wall art. Called BeoSound Shape, this wireless speaker system, fashioned in the form of modular, hexagonal wall tiles that clip together filling a room with sound in a new way. Behind each removable grille you’ll find either an amplifier, smart hub, speaker or acoustic dampers – that seamlessly clip together in a series of different patterns, fabrics and colours.
Consumers can purchase additional Shape sets (uniting up to 44 panels) to create their own wall of sound installation. For such an endeavor, B&O had to develop a new system that allows all of the components to work together.
At the heart of the system is the BeoSound Core connectivity hub – or tile – that enables wireless streaming from Apple Airplay, Chromecast, Spotify Connect and Bluetooth 4.1.
The Core also plays nice with the BeoLink system, so it can form part of a multi-room set-up alongside other Bang & Olufsen and Beoplay products.
BeoSound Shape will be available in August 2017, with prices starting at €4000.
